Hi,

I have installed Ubuntu 6.10 on a virtual box as per instructions, but when I try to type with the laptop keyboard, all I get is gobbledegook. I have an HP Pavilion ze2355EA running Windows XP SP2. It has an AMD Turion 64, 2G memory. I wanted to try this out on the virtual disk before committing myself to using it on my Ubuntu machine - in case I messed up. My mouse works fine. It is just the keyboard. Any ideas? Confused

Have you checked that Ubuntu is set up for whatever keyboard layout you're using (UK, Dvorak, US etc)?

What keyboard layout are you using in Windows?

I have EXACTLY this same problem except that I am running Vbox 1.3.8 in Mandriva Free Spring 2007 and the OSes I can't type in are Windows or Puppy and my box is a desktop. To give you a sample of the "goobledegook", (using home row) caps lock = space, A = 1, S = t, D = 4, F = 6, G = 7, H = 8, J = 0, K = -, L = =, ; = v, ' = b and enter = x. Nothing else is right and Esc = enter. Windows says the keyboard is OK and outside of Vbox the keyboard works OK in Mandriva. I have posted the question to Vitrualbox.org and Linuxquestions.org and haven't gotten any replies. This forum is the first place I have found someone with the same problem.
